I´m not saying that you won´t get a visa but the first question that the officers at the US embassy will ask you is "Why didn´t you get your visa from Taiwan." If I were you Id try from Taiwan.

You should apply for a visitor?s visa in the U.S embassy before you go to Canada.

Likely your U.S visa will be refused in Canada. Better chances to be approved from your home country as long as you meet the requeriments.

As a Canadian PR. You don´t have to apply in Taiwan. You can apply USA visa in Canada without problem.

You have to be atleast 1-2 years in canada , before the US guys can grant you visa . The chances are 90% high that you might get a reject.
The easy way is to apply from your home country. I applied for my US visa after staying in this country for 3 and half years as student and still they screwed me and delayed me so much to give a visa. Neverthless they gave me a visa since i had academic conference. But for pleasure trip, i think its most likely reject in first 2 years if you are on a visa.
I do not know how this works for PR´s. Even for PR´s i think the US guys wants you to stay in this country for 1 year.

I think Jim is wrong , He is not a PR though , he is on a work permit in Canada.(or he will).

He still as a non-Canadian resident , I still thinking that would be easer for Kim to apply from Taiwan for his or her U.S visa (B1/B2).
How Boss said "The chances are 90% high that you might get a reject"

hi andy.,
I said that the chances are 90% high that you might get a reject, if you apply from canada ( on work permit) without staying in this country for 1-2 years.
Also kim did not mention whether taiwan is his home country.who knows, he might even be there on a work visa??

Ok I will be on a work permit in canada but right now I dont have enough ties in my country I think for a approval.. as I am awaiting the visa from Canada, I have quit my job all packed up and ready to go.. just now waiting.. so I would most likely get denied in Tiawan.. this is my home country.. I didnt think it would be this hard to get a visa from Canada if I have ties there.. applying for a PR , a job and bank account.. but as you say.. they want you to be living there for a year or so before will grant a visa.. thats not good news
